More About The Key Fob

We do not need to elaborate much on what a key fob is as you want to know if you should visit a car dealership to replace it.
But for those not knowing what it is.
The key fob is a remote with a keychain that opens the car doors or your truck and can start the vehicle.
Still, a car can have different key fobs in different shapes and sizes capable of doing other functions. Here are some examples:

- Remote Fob

It is a standard option with several buttons and performs different functions.
For example, it can remotely unlock your car door and start the vehicle.
It is attached to a key chain, and the actual key will start your vehicle.

- A Combo Key

The key fob has several buttons to unlock your car, open the trunk and remotely start the vehicle. It is a one-piece key with an ignition key.

- The Flip Key

It is a key and fob in one, but the key will flip out from the side when you press the release button. You can flip the key back when not needed.
On the remote portion, you find several buttons to unlock the trunk and doors remotely. 

- The Fobik

Fobik stands for Frequency Operated Button Ignition Key or Finger Operated Button Integrated Key.
The remote buttons can lock/unlock doors and trunk and start the vehicle remotely. You insert the remote into the ignition to start your car. 

- The Smart or Proximity Key

When your vehicle has a push-button start, you will have a proximity remote allowing you to start your car from a specific distance with the remote.
In the remote, you find an emergency key you can slide out if you need to open doors when the remote battery is dead.
Unfortunately, these batteries die fast, always searching for a signal.
On Point automotive locksmith offers a single and lifetime key fob battery replacement.

What Key Fob Does Your Vehicle Need?

A keyfob is as unique as your fingerprint, and buying the right one as they look similar is confusing. Instead of guessing, it helps to use a fitment finder to see what works best with your car. 

The crucial thing is to match the number (FCC) and the type of buttons on the remote you have with the new one.
For example, if the remote has a lock, panic, and unlock, you need to order one with the same buttons.
